I Got Tagged!

Kida tagged me the other day, and it's only the second time I've got tagged. Jayshree tagged me once and I didn't know how it worked then. So here goes.

The tag:

Two questions in each category answer them and then tag your friends from the blog-o-sphere. Leave a comment on their blog letting them know they have been tagged and you are all set.


Your oldest memories

1. Falling of the bed while trying to pull off a stunt with the tricycle on the bed
( if you wondering how I've turned out like this, i fell on my head!)

What were you doing ten years ago?

November 1998, the start of a few very forgettable years,...errr! I cant seem to remember!


Your first thought in the morning:

Damnit!! What was my dream again??

If you build a time capsule what would it contain?

A sign which reads "All those of you who enter here, abandon all hope!"

Will Be:

This year…

I intend to pursue all my passions pro-actively. Those include lying on my bed and staring at the ceiling, and sitting at my cubicle and staring at the glass panel in front of me. I'm still optimistic about shedding 5 kilos off my body before the year ends, because the label of obesity is too heavy for my shoulders. I'm finally going to enter the Guinness book of world records for the number of times I utter "basically" and "chill! chill!" in a conversation.

What do you see yourself doing 14 years from now?

I'll still be in Advertising. I'll still be working on my first book, my first play, my first film, my first graphic novel and the likes. Basically, I'll still be 21. After all, some things will never change. For everything else, there is Mastercard.

I tag:

Precocious Perf ( the one who introduced me to blogging )


Sam,The Goddess ( My first blog-friend )

Jayashree ( The first blogger to tag me )

Alokish & Alole ( two people who have been, in recent months, subjected to both, my blog and I. And also all the typo's ( oops! i meant typos) in my blog. )

Sudhir Pai said...

hey Kida,

I'm afraid I didn't capitalize on lady luck's early interest in my life!

sam said...

aaargh! i don't get the shiny blogger award and get a tag instead? :P

Purely Narcotic said...

Haha. I remember you telling me about walking on when you didn't find a Ped Xing and of course, I pictured you in shorts, school bag on back, water bottle round neck and the French beard ;)

We haven't heard you sing, Pai. Noffair.

Sudhir Pai said...

@Sam: awww...
ok, shiny blogger award laced with ribbons and orange candy when I meet you! For now, please accept the tag,

Sudhir Pai said...

@perf: I did not sport a french beard with school shorts man!!! isn't that a fashion faux pas? [:)]

Jayashree Bhat said...

Will do the tag soon. Going through a nasty bout of blog laziness. Dratted end semester exams.
Off topic, did you notice that one semester is exactly like the other as far as academics are concerned? And though we know what's the best way to study and blah, we never use it for anything other than advising our juniors?
Sigh. Such is college life.

jyotika said...

Hey ther!!
Kissed at ???!!!! thats news to me!!!
Well playing with you and akka at matunga gymkhana is also one of my oldest memories...:)

Priyanka said...

Ahem, Jyo, if I may say so, both you and Sudhir need to get your memories checked. It was Indian gymkhana, you guys, and not Matunga gymkhana. And no, I don't remember playing with you baby brats back then ;)
Sudhir, must have to thank the person who gave you the tricycle, he did us all (your blog readers included) a big favor!!

Sudhir Pai said...

@Jayashree: oh, my advice to you is never give an advice! [;)]

still waiting to see your response to the tag

Sudhir Pai said...

@jyo: ha ha ha!! i was just chking out an album at home, and that was fun! [:)]

Sudhir Pai said...

lol!! be fair! you were older , remember[:)]!

I can imagine how irritated you'd be to be forced to play with Jyo and I instead of someone of your age. [:P]

oh another memory! The two of you used to write to me often as teenagers and I remember I only managed to reply a couple of times.

Oh and you are tagged too...
please accept this delayed tag!
